CHANUS THE RHINO IS ON HER WAY HOME.
Where better to start than with the story of Chanua, a rare black rhino who was born at Chester Zoo in 2013. After 8 years in the UK Chanua is finally ready to head to Tanzania, where she will be part of a conservation effort to increase numbers of black rhinos in the wild.
A rare black rhinoceros that was born in the UK, is now getting ready to be released into the wild in Tanzania.
The rhino, named Chanua, was born at Chester Zoo in 2012 and then was moved to Flamingo Land in North Yorkshire in 2015. Now, after weeks of preparation, she is travelling to the Udzungwa Forest Project, Tanzania, where she will be a part of the conservation effort to increase numbers of black rhinos in the wild. Chanua left the UK this week and will be released into the wild in a few weeks time.
Good luck, Chanua! We hope they have peanut butter as tasty as Pip & Nut in Africa, don't forget you suncream!

AUTHOR, 94, SHOWS IT'S NEVER TOO LATE
Margaret Ford was born in Blackburn in 1926, and last year she published her first book aged 93. Now, aged 94, she is already planning her second book as she still has many stories to share. A true reminder that it is never too late to try something new or pursue a passion you've always side-lined.
"It’s fair to say I didn’t expect, aged 93, to become Britain’s oldest debut author. My story is just my life, really. It never crossed my mind that anyone else might care to know more."
